hey. I finally got around to posting this picture of Alley's thumb. She is the very smart cat that we live with. She has evolved a thumb, which she uses, although it's not fully prehensile.
I don't know if I've mentioned it, but this cat has won me over to being a potential pet-owner. For many years I've thought that I would never want to have pets. The two other pets in our shared house (Misha the cat and Lulu the dog) don't inspire me to live with animals, but I really like this particular cat. She makes me wonder what it's like to be feline. It seems pretty appealing, and I like that there's a little non-human-being around.
